1 quote found searching on James Thomas "Jim" Northrup

I enjoyed the challenge of hitting. I wanted to see what the Hall of Famers were like. Who knows? If I got a hit or two off them, maybe I was as good as they were. I never accepted failure. You have to believe you can hit anyone, and I did. I can hit anybody out there at certain times, if you give me enough shots. And that's the way you have to believe. Guys like McLain and Lolich and Gibson felt the same about hitters: 'I can get anyone out.' They have the same positive attitude. It's a challenge. That's what makes the game so much fun. I enjoyed the challenge every day.
